Excellent Probate Guidance
I was referred to Alex and his paralegal assistant, Amy, by a friend of mine. In my opinion, personal references are worth their weight in gold as there are so many law offices competing for your business today. How do you choose? Which one should you trust? Well, I am pleased to say that I was delighted that I listened to my friend and contacted this law office. During my initial meeting with Alex and Amy they both took the time to explain, in detail, the steps that would be required to address my probate issue and how long each step would take and why. They made sure I was comfortable with their advice and recommendations. I have used many attorneys over many years for personal, probate and real estate transactions - some good and some bad. I must say that Alex and Amy provided me with straightforward answers, prompt and courteous service at a reasonable price. They also left the door open for me to come back if I had any follow up questions or concerns. I will definitely knock on their door for future legal needs. So, my overall assessment of their service would have to be excellent!

An Excellent Team to do business with
Alex and Amy were the perfect team to help us redraft our wills. From our first consult, they were very professional and patient, answering all of our questions. We were very pleased with our finished wills, Amy dotted all the i’s, and crossed all the t’s perfectly. Highly recommended!

He was a light in a dark place...
Having gone through a devastating divorce Alex and Amy were recommended by a friend who was my therapist. They were supportive emotionally and helped me get through the process of the divorce. They got me through a very rough patch and made the process easy and they were extremely approachable and accommodating to my schedule. Because of their professionalism and Amy's friendship I was able to get though it with ease. Thank you so much. I would highly recommend them!

Al is a legal savior
I want to thank Al and Amy for their hardwork and patience during an inheritance matter. They were very professional and informative during the long two year process and I was very grateful for their help

Thank you!
I found Alex and Amy after my original lawyer told me to make an appt to draft a will but he was always too busy and never answered my calls. My friend Kathy, who is the Marketing Director at the Law Firm she works at, suggesting I call Alex and was given an appt the following week. They were both easy to talk to , extremely helpful in explaining the law and were very professional. Amy's easy way of explaining things helped put my mind at ease and earned my trust right away. I would highly recommend them.

Totally awesome lawyer!
Alex and Amy really helped me out of a bad situation this year. I was in a situation where I had to keep away from a person who lived at my former residence. They protected me by acting as my representatives maintaining contact with that person and the apartment management. They handled paying all my bills so I wouldn't need to contact the person anymore. I also used them to draft a new personal will. I highly recommend them.

A consummate professional.Personable and knowledgable.
Al was an outstanding advocate in my case. He listened to the personal animosities related to my legal conflict and reassuringly convinced me to focus on the legal issues. His intervention eventually led to an out of court settlement. He is a true master of his craft. Thank you Al.

Competent, capable, reliable. A 5 Star Attorney
Attorney Matulewicz is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and unbelievably dedicated to achieving the desired results for his clients. I reached out to him based on a referral I received from a colleague and needless to say, I was not disappointed. Ours was what should gave gave been a straightforward care and custody agreement, but as with many domestic cases, there were many detours encountered along the way, none of which ever phased Attorney Matulewicz. My family put our trust and confidence into this man and a result, we came to a suitable agreement with the other side, and I now look to Al as a trusted advisor. Working for a top global law firm, I am exposed to a myriad of different attorneys daily. No one has the personal touch, the humane approach, or the capacity to truly "see the bug picture" the way this man does. I highly recommend him without any hesitation.

5 star rating for Alexander F.X. Matulewicz, Counsellor at Law
Alex and his legal team has done a fantastic job for me. I hired Alex Matulewicz, Counsellor at Law to be a personal representative for a family member. I would have signature authority for that family member’ financial and heath care issues. Alex is not like other lawyers. Other lawyers will charge the client for time spent on phone calls and e-mails to and from the client, not Alex. He never charged me for his time on the phone or for reading, writing, or responding to my e-mails I sent to him or his legal team. After every phone call, Alex would follow-up, generally within a day or two, with an e-mail summarizing the phone conversation. This is just one of the many ways of being prompt, knowledgeable and professional. People will say it is the little things that matter. Alex and his legal team (Amy) have done many little things that mattered greatly. They got the extra mile for their clients. I will try to cover just a few examples; Alex and Amy have made themselves available on the weekends. I am living out-of-state and in another time zone. The have answered my phone calls and have initiated phone calls on the weekend. My sister lives a couple towns over from the lawyers office, the family needed some legal documents that where at the lawyer’s office. On a weekend, Alex hand delivered the dockets to my sister’s home. These are just a few of the times they went the extra mile. This shows the level of care and concern Alex and his team has for their clients.

Estate handling
Alexander handled my estate case of the death of my father with speed, knowledge and efficiency. It even had a wrinkle in that, during the handling of the estate, a suit was filed against the estate for assets and Alexander got it thrown out. You would do well to consider using him.

Alexander was outstanding with not only working quickly, but responded personally with every step or new revelation with my case. Most of conversations included his personal support and recognition that this was a difficult process. An attorney who actually cared was a wonderful surprise and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of council.

Al was hired to sort out my mother’s estate because the personal representative was from out of state. He did such a great service for our family that I hired him to assist with fathers Mass Health and Estate Planning. I would recommend that anyone in need of such services contact Al's office you won't regret it or get better representation. -William

Excellent Lawyer
I hired Attorney Matulewicz several years ago and cannot say enough good things about my experience. He assisted and guided me through a very stressful legal situation. Knowledgeable, honest, (and affordable) Alex exceles at what he does, and Amy, the paralegal, was just wonderful. A couple of years after my legal matter had been resolved, I again used this office for my estate planning needs. I was just as pleased with the services provided the second time around. I'd highly recommend contacting this office if you are in need of a lawyer.

Someone You Can Trust
If you want someone who can relieve your worries, keep things simple, and bend over backwards to support you, Al's the guy. With all the uncertainties of a father passing away and the intimidating sound of "probate", my sister and I did not know what we were getting into, but Al made sure the process could be as easy and fast as possible. While providing his warm and strong reassurance that things would go alright, Al proved not only his extraordinary experience with these things as a lawyer but also his phenomenal character as a person.

Long Time Experience
I've known Al since the second grade. He always was known as being very sharp. He has represented me in a criminal case and got fantastic results. He also represented me in a dispute over my gun license. I endorse Me. Matulewicz to everyone I know because he really tries to help people, his costs are really fair, and I see how he goes the extra mile. He now does a lot of probate work with his assistant. I've had him come out to the house for meetings with my mother, brother and sisters. You definitely should consider him to be your attorney.

Delivered ahead of schedule and under budget
When my father passed away, I was referred to this office to get legal help for dad's estate. From talking on the phone, to meeting in his office, to correspondence via email, Al and Amy were always professional, diligent, honest and very competent. I have never delt with the legal system before, so I was very nervous and grief is always difficult to manage. However, Al knew exactly how to speak to my brother and I to not only ease our worries but was very informed and experienced. I became personal representative within 2 weeks of the entire process which was indeed a Christmas miracle. I highly recommend Al and his team to anyone looking for a great lawyer.

Grateful client
Choosing an Attourney is always a daunting task. Recently I had to choose from out of state based on reviews and phone interview alone. Mr. Matulewicz and staff provided professional guidance and support. They reasured me through their professionalism and quick response to my family court matter. Thank you for everything that you do.
